. first lady michelle obama has cancelled an appearance in new hampshire on tuesday, and president obama is said to be going to fema headquarters today to get a briefing and begin monitoring storm conditions. >>> local democratic and republican parties are ramping up their efforts to make sure voters get to the polls. all over the bay area phone banks are up and calling people in both parties. abc7 news reporter thomas ramon has the story from oakland. >> she is a volunteer going door to door in this direct to make sure the voters know the issues and get out to vote. she's part of a few dozen men and women who volunteer to walk precincts for "oakland rising." she said this is important enough to do whatever she can do to help. if they see my face, they see my face and then i can get them out and tell them it's important, we need you. >> this election has local, as well as national issues that everyone should be concerned about, according to this woman, the executive director of oakland rising. >> we want to make sure people are clear about what is going to be on the ballot and make sure
. house speaker john tweeted mayb president obama can do. both capped dates will be cam -- candidates will be campaigning today in the make or break swing state of ohio. reporting live alison burns ktvu channel 2 news. >>> a new ktvu field poll shows a dramatic shift in how californians say they will vote on proposition 34. the proposed repeal of the state's death penalty. it shows a sudden rise in support for proposition 34. 45% of likely voters say they will vote yes. 38% say they will vote no. 17% of voters remain undecided on that proposition. now prop 34 would eliminate the death penalty in california and replace it with life in prison without the possibility of parole. supporters of prop 34 says keeping hundreds of inmates on death row costs the state millions of dollars every year. they also point to the cases where people convicted of murder were later found to be innocent. opponents of prop 34 call ate slap in the face to the family of murder victims. >> hey. what are you doing right now? >> i just came from voting. >> coming up at 6:45 how a group of bay area students are tr
don't think it really will. in new york, you might see the numbers be a bit smaller. obama is still of course going to carry away with a win with new york. interesting to see the numbers in new york city. a lot of flooding in lower manhattan. curious if the polling stations will be there. >> what about you? >> i think it will affect it a little bit. it's sad what happened. new york and new jersey states that weren't a contest. i don't think it will be too much of an affect. but great to see the president work with the republicans and the whole disaster being a nonpartisan thing. >> let's get over and ask two more students. what do you think about the bromance? do you think that will have an impact on voters when they see them working together? >> i think absolutely. but aside from bridging the divide. the president is using this as a chance to look like a leader. sitting there in that fema chair, he looks like a leader. bringing people together. and encouraging them to fix this mess. >> what about you? >> i think it will definitely have somewhat of an impact. people really hate the
of each other. new hampshire contrary to the real politics average. recent and good polling shows romney two or three ahead . pennsylvania 20 votes where it shows mitt romney three ahead and ohio 18. tied . wisconsin 10, tied and michigan 15. they are tided. and minnesota 16 and obama is ahead by three . nevada 9. obama ahead by two. and iowa 6 they are tied. he's going to win at least 15 votes from the states and probably more like 45 or 50. and i think romney is on track to a significant victory and i think when we look back at this we will wonder why we thought it was so close. >> when it comes to women voters romney closed the gap particularly after his debate. women will tell you the economy is the top concern. yesterday's numbers showing a slight rise in the gdp and final unemployment report that comes out before the election. could it have an impact if it shows improvement as well? >> first of all 2.0 percent is enemic and border line recession . i do expect the job numbers to show a huge improvement on friday. it is called bls. and drop the l for the preelection data that is comi
in the need to get to the polls. with that said, some concern in the polls for the campaign. then seen in the seven surveys in the last two days, of ohio that shows that it's still a margin race within the margin of error, but mr. obama is with a slight lead with and that margin so the romney campaign has begun looking at expanding the battlefield where the playing field to make you will, by going after states like minnesota and michigan and pennsylvania, states that have been in the blue column for many, many weeks just as the polls tighten up in the debate nationwide, it was a battleground state that seems to have taken a little longer, but in those three states it's also a margin race. the romney campaign spending money trying to provide additional discussions to get to the 270 needed electoral college votes in order to win. very, very tight. confidence and optimism. when republicans will have to get to the polls come tuesday. neil: i know it's hard to hear there. i understand if you can't. are they concerned that maybe the storm to make it had been a helluva lot worse. obviously th
them with a limited time to go. on the other hand, mitt romney can point to national polls and say i've gotten the upper hand since the first debate, so we will see whether the ground games get affected by this. obama's generally considered to have the more extensive and effective ground game. that, of course, is going to be tested on election day, but if some of that is interrupted, he and his people could be affected, and we'll see whether the early vote in places like north carolina, for example, where it matters some and florida is shaken up by this. >> and some that have early voting has been cancelled, larry. who does this hurt more in, your view? which candidate stands to lose the most as a result of this disruption of the campaigning? >> well, it's a very tough call. look, mitt romney has tremendous momentum behind him. not just in national polls. he's got state poll momentum in iowa and wisconsin, for example. today rasmussen just gave him the nod in ohio, that's the first time, so the question you want to ask is does this slow romney's momentum or not? i don't really think

to back up obama spin on that, savannah. three new polls out from the "new york times" showing the president leading narrowly in three states, pennsylvania, maryland and ohio. >> tamron hall is over at the news desk. new york. >> reporter: offer closing its doors for two days for the first time in its decade they reopen this morning. cnbc's mandy drury is there. mandy, good morning. >> reporter: thanks for that. the lights are own and traders have returned to business. hopefully things returning to normal. mayor bloomberg is ringing the opening bell after two days of being in the dark. we've not seen close here in the markets in the united states for 1888 for two days due to a weather-related event. things that we're look for, stocks impacted negatively by hurricane sandy, hotels, retailers, home improvement stores suc as home depot and there's ny hhways shut down and lots and lots of flights have also been cancelled. back to you. >> all right, mandy. thank you very much. the teen who allegedly confessed to killing 10-year-old colorado schoolgirl jessica ridgeway has been charg
obama up in ohio still. >> yeah, i think obama does have a slight lead in ohio. >> even though the cincinnati inquirer poll just had it tied. >> i understand that. >> it's not rasmussen. which polls do we believe now? >> i understand that. do you want me to -- should we keep going on this or shy deal with andrew's question about the ground game? >> no, we better talk sandy i think. >> okay. sandy effect on the vote is entirely speculative. there are a lot of people yakking about it, but mostly making stuff up. i'll go to a couple things. first of all, obama is believed to have a somewhat more extensive ground game, he has more people on the ground. so in theory, he has more to disrupt. the president's schedule has him doing more events that will have to be canceled than romney. on the other hand, because romney is down a field goal and needs something to happen, the idea that sandy could flereeze things in place for a few days is not necessarily good for him because he had momentum after the first debate. the momentum seems to have died out. it's left him in a very competitive
where president obama and governor romney remain in statistical dead heat. "washington post/abc news poll", showing 49% support governor romney and 48% to the president. so close at this time. sean spicer communications director from the rnc coming to us every monday as he has for last couple weeks. nice to have you back. >> thanks, jenna. jenna: on a day like this public safety is paramount. we want to keep that in mind but we can't forget there is an election taking place in little more than a week. has the sudden appearance of this storm affected your strategy in any way? >> no, it hasn't affected the strategy but i think our first and foremost goal of the safety of those near or in the path of sandy. governor romney canceled some events in virginia, particularly because he didn't want to be in the way of first-responders and those who may need help after sandy goes through. we have utilized our victory centers in north carolina, virginia, pennsylvania, new hampshire to accept donations for people who might be affected. he is out there in ohio, wisconsin, iowa today. we're keeping
to get things done. you know, elections have consequences. 60% of hoosiers polled reject president obama, and mr. donnelly supports him. we have two-thirds of hoosier who say we're on the wrong track. mr. donnelly wants that to continue for another four years. we have overwhelming, overwhelming numbering showing hoosiers disagree with obama care, and even after he said he was not going to support it, he caved in, fell to partisanship, and he did. that's not good. you know, i've been attacked on two fronts. number one, yes, because i stand up for principles. those two, specifically, standing up for the rule of law, oath of office, respect for pensioners, retired teachers, and cops. i stand for the principles. sadly, if mr. donnelly stood for his, we couldn't have obamacare today. it wouldn't be an issue. he says he's dick lugar like. you know, senator lugar and i were rivals, to have the privilege to stands at the pod -- podium, by we stand united here. harry reid can want continue will be the majority leer. still, mr. donnelly still can't say if he will support hymn. if you don't know wh
that translates to enthusiasm or more people going to the polls, i don't know. and finally, really quickly, they're going to be watching cuyohoga county. not a swing county but marking a victory beat for barack obama. >> how strickland lost in 2010. all margins. his margin in cuyohoga much smaller than they had planned on. chris jansing i know you'll have more coming up. we'll have a special edition of chris's show live from ohio, 10:00 right here on msnbc. all right. stocks getting a boost from the better than expected october jobs report. wall street just opening 33 seconds ago. let's get the market rundown. becky quick is here. not much bad news in this jobs report. >> no. >> hard to find any isn't it? >> if you nit pick you can find a couple things but all in all this is a really strong report. numbers came in better than expected on just about every count. if you were looking at the number of jobs created it was 171,000. that was better than the 125,000 people had been expecting that economists had been expecting. you also could take a look at the revisions over the last couple months. appa

, goat youtube with the ads? they spin us about polls. you ask the romney people to explain how they're going to pay for their tax cut. you don't get an answer. you want a jobs plan from obama, you don't get an answer. >> on that point of what the campaigns themselves are serving up, and of course we tend to cover what they are talking about, obama campaign ad has gotten a whole lot of attention the last couple of days. lina dunham, creator and star of hor's "girls," saying this about why she is swooning for the president. >> the first time shouldn't be with just anybody. you want to do it with a great guy. a guy what cares whether you get health insurance and specifically whether you get birth control. >> i said this on dailydownload, i wrote a piece on this. this is something that the campaign is doing to reach out to younger female voters. conservatives are going crazy about this kind of thing. but it is getting younger women to talk about women's issues. >> i didn't have any problem with that ad. had a couple of down to entendres, but so what? >> it's funny, interesting, at least
. this has really changed the plans for mitt romney and for president barack obama but what are you hearing from the romney camp? >> reporter: well, don, i'll tell you right now the romney campaign is feeling very optimistic, not only looking at those national polls, if you look at our latest cnn poll of polls mitt romney leading nationally over the president, but in ohio our latest cnn/orc, even though it shows the president with a healthy lead there, it is still within the margin of error and mitt romney has played some serious catch-up. there's another poll that came out a consortium of ohio newspapers that shows the race tied in this state. the romney campaign is feeling pretty good but the "x" factor in everything right now from now until election day, the last nine days of this race, all hinges on hurricane sandy at this point. an election that was already uncertain and unpredictable is now only worse. just in the last hour, don, we can tell you the president has gob gone ahead and canceled an event he had scheduled in youngstown, ohio, for tomorrow. president clinton and vice preside
the impact of money on these races. we spent a lot of time saying obama was going to get swamped by advertising, probably going to have more money in their campaign but with the outside groups factored in. i think the presidential race and the polls have sort of shown this, he's kind of immune to that. at the presidential level so much free media coverage. everybody can if follow this race without looking at television advertising. as long as you can reach a threshold at the presidential level i don't think money will be the reason you win or lose a race. where money matters more, the interesting test, i don't know what's going to happen, what about the house and senate races. the house races where there's really no free media coverage, if you have these super pacs coming in just now and targeting a few districts here and there, with candidates who nobody -- who is going to go into the voting booth in a week and a half never heard of, the money can have a bigger impact there. >> shepherd, the question like almost like a nuclear arms race, you have to have it to run. but at the sa
. there's other polls showing it very, very close, within the margin of error. in fact i saw a poll right before the storm that had a tie there. i'll tell you what's key, erin, to look at now just a few days left and that is barack obama has not broken 50%. he's down in the 47%, 48%, has been for what the better part of two months now. he can't break that number whether it's ohio or florida or virginia, colorado, and on election day there's a couple things that are going to matter. if you're undecided, those undecides will break for the challengers, that's what's historically known, that's four years they'd already know if they'd be with the president or not. they'll break with the challengers, in addition it's your ground game. we have an amazing ground game, we're going to have our votes out there, the intensity is with us. all the fundamentals of this campaign are with mitt romney and that's because he's the best candidate out there with a great, great deal to offer the american voters. >> thank you very much. we appreciate your time, and next as much as the nation focuses on sandy, th
obama. if chris christie hadn't done this, if sandy hadn't happened -- >> if we hadn't cheated the unemployment numbers, if the hurricane hadn't happened, bureau of labor statistics. >> polls and media. the liberal media. the mainstream media. >> that's right. >> is that what's going to happen over the next few days, i don't know on thjonathan, in yo experience of covering presidential elections, does this feel premature that they're writing the epitaph or does that tell you what is going to happen? >> it tells you that they are cya'ing right now before the election. they're not going to let themselves and we're all very bullish about the president's prospects on stoous. but until the people actually vote we won't know. what they're doing is very -- if mitt romney does indeed lose everyone is on record as saying, well, if it's this or it was that. it was sandy. >> yeah, of course. except never admitting that he was actually a horrendous candidate. >> heard it. terrible. >> crystal ball, karen finney, jonathan capehart. >>> stay with us, much more from democracy plaza in just a
battleground states. our latest poll of polls, it's an average of several recent surveys shows that romney with a 48% as opposed to president obama at 45%. that is among likely voters nationally. want to bring in our political director mark preston. mark, wow. the october surprise. nobody really saw it coming, but it is very important, and you have fundraisers that have been canceled. you have campaign rallies that aren't happening. eight days to go. clearly, both of these campaigns are looking at ways to adjust. how do we think ultimately this is going to shake out in the days ahead? >> well, you know, suzanne, certainly in the near-term as you said campaign events now are being canceled. president obama in a short time will brief the nation on what he has learned and what the preparations are up and down the east coast right now, but the campaign still goes on, and, in fact, just about an hour ago some of his campaign advisors held a conference call with us in the media to give us an update on the race, and, in fact, one of the questions to his chief strategist david axelrod was how do y
, in president obama's to try to change it to get out from underneath romney. megyn: before we -- before mother nature hit that pause button we had a campaign in which governor romney had the momentum and the polls were going in this is favor. we had a president with an incredible get out the vote ground game in the critical swing states, and the advantages of incumbencyment s. how, if at all did those two narratives change given hurricane sandy in. >> for the president, any day in which his supporters can't be got even to the polls for early voting in ohio and in virginia is bad, because they need every second that they can to try to get out their vote. he's working on a democratic base election. he's trying to win on the basis of maximizing, getting all the toothpaste out of the tube that he possibly can among democrats, where as what romney is trying to do is ride a wave here and get independents and get others, moderates to come to his side and join an already solid and already energized republican basement for the president every minute that he can't be running vans and sending people door
. he shows up in polls at 1% or 2%, but people tend to respond to polls more favorably to third-party candidates than they act on election day and it is behavior on election day that matters. if virginia turns out to be 10,000 votes between romney and obama and virgil goode its 25,000 votes, you could make the argument he might have cost mitt romney the state. but otherwise i doubt it. and there is a liberal candidate, jill stein, the green party candidate. i doubt she gets a very much support. >> a few minutes left with our guest larry sabato -- host: a few minutes left for our guests larry sabato. hi, rose. caller: i am so glad to get on to talk with you. i have issues if i could take a little time. it is called the koch brothers issues. there was a national geographic documentary and i am quoting a lot of it, where they were born and raised in russia and they inherited a lot of money and they are actually communists. so all the republican party kind of liens on their side. money is not given away -- some people just give money away or they loan it to you, but if you are going
for the liberals to step up to the plate here. i hear this thing about, oh, wait until obama's relegislated, he'll stop laughing any time anybody mentions this, the idea of legalization. it's not just a libertarian fancy. in opinion polls and in the voting in referendum in all of the states that it's come up in, it's more popular than gay marriage, more popular than a lot of stuff that moved into the consensus of acceptable discussion. it's only in official in washington that this has not been, you know, accepted, and, by the way, i hate to pick the liberals down one more time, but i have never, in my life, heard legalization of drugs talk about in a presidential debate until the first republican primary debit, end of last year or this year, and they got a big round of applause. they did not get through it off the stage. they got laughed at by mitt romney and the rest of them, but you take out the little, what we call in marxist theory, the super structure of the party apparatus, and everybody takes it seriously. maybe the guys will contradict me. >> i prefer taxes on consumption opposed to an
charlie crist on the stump. president clinton has come down to florida. if you look at the polls in 2010, at the candidates clinton endorsed did not do very good at all. 2012 is the economy and issues that are important to floridians. i think it was a mistake for the obama campaign. we will see tuesday what is going to happen. >> this charlie crist's opinions way you much? you are a republican. caller: he's a nice guy but he has lost a lot of integrity. people really cannot trust him anymore. he plans to run for governor. i think tuesday will say whether he will run for governor or not in 2014 against gov. rick scott. he has lost a lot of credibility. he has not been a man of his word. he has been a huge flop lopper. evolver.s call it an evil ov host: were you watching our carriage of the debate between congressman alan west n. murphy? yes.er: alan was talking about moving america truly forward. mr. murphy was talking about negativity, as these campaigns have been doing respectively. host: he is calling us from sun city florida. up next is allen, an independent in minnesota. hello. calle
to a final weekend with the polls nationally showing a dead heat and in the swing states a slide advantage for president obama. >> obviously it's all happening, the theater of it is happening in the crucial states. the governor is in wisconsin today. as we can see, the president in ohio. you look at the top of drudge, john, and it's all about the complications of the recovery, the gas lines, the frustration. how much vulnerability does that leave the president even though he may appear to be acting presidential? >> reporter: i don't think very much at all. if any at all. because, first of all, the complications are occurring in states that the president is going to win easily. that's new jersey, new york, connecticut, for example, and, secondly, i don't think anybody is blaming the president for any of those complications. certainly chris christie, the keynote speaker at the republican convention this year, is not blaming the president. to the contrary, he's praising the president's leadership. that's an asset for president obama. i don't know how big of an asset. i wouldn't expect it to c
up in polls at 1% or 2%, but people tend to respond to polls more favorably to third-party candidates than they act on election day and it is behavior on election day that matters. if virginia turns out to be 10,000 votes between romney and obama and virgil goode its 25,000 votes, you could make the argument he might have cost mitt romney the state. but otherwise i doubt it. and there is a liberal candidate, jill stein, the green party candidate. >> a few minutes left with our guest. >> the "washington journal" will look at the battleground state of ohio. like to the rhode island 1st district debate. this is courtesy of wjar-tv in providence. >> nbc-10 news and the candidates with us. republican brendan doherty, independent david, and david cicilline. we will have a free-form discussion . i will ensure everyone get equal time. let us start with you, mr. vogal. if you do get to congress, what do you think a freshman congressman in washington can do to improve the job situation for a state with the second highest unemployment in the nation? >> thank you for having me. there is a limited
and that they will drive them to the polls whereas they may not be as interested in the presidential election. host: who would that help in the presidential candidates? guest: it would help president obama. i was talking to someone on the issue of colorado amendment 64. it is a republican stronghold but support for legalization down there was high among both democrats and republicans. that is a testament to the libertarian spirit. it's really not the government's business what i do in the privacy of my own home and a lot of them look at the nation's war on drugs, specifically marijuana and things were a lot of money has been wasted on the effort. people were pushing the legalization efforts here equate marijuana and alcohol and the measure calls to regulate marijuana like alcohol. our newspaper has supported legalization. we came out in opposition to amendment 64, the legalization piece this year, because we did not think this was the right vehicle. host: what about third-party candidates in colorado? guest: a lot of us in colorado who have already received their ballots and saw the number of candidates
will begin? i don't have a clue. he shows up in polls at 1% or 2%, but people tend to respond to polls more favorably to third-party candidates than they act on election day and it is behavior on election day that matters. if virginia turns out to be 10,000 votes between romney and obama and virgil goode its 25,000 votes, you could make the argument he might have cost mitt romney the state. but otherwise i doubt it. and there is a liberal candidate, jill stein, the green party candidate. i doubt she gets a very much support. >> a few minutes left with our guest larry sabato -- host: a few minutes left for our guests larry sabato. hi, rose. caller: i am so glad to get on to talk with you. i have issues if i could take a little time. it is called the koch brothers issues. there was a national geographic documentary and i am quoting a lot of it, where they were born and raised in russia and they inherited a lot of money and they are actually communists. so all the republican party kind of liens on their side. money is not given away -- some people just give money away or they loan it to you, b
. according to a new poll from cnn, president obama is three points ahead of governor romney among likely voters, 50%-47%. the same survey shows president obama winning women there by 16 points and lower income voters by 30 points. now governor romney on the other hand leads with men by 13 points. he has an advantage of six points with people making more than $50,000 a year. the other fresh ohio poll from the conservative-leaning rasmussen has president obama and governor romney tied. we'll go to cleveland and henry gomez. welcome inside the watch "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> jennifer: you're welcome. who has the advantage, president obama or governor romney. >> you have to give it to president obama virtue of the fact that he won here four years ago, and his organizers never left the state. they were heavily involved last year about an issue to repeal collective bargaining restrictions that the republicans placed into law. >> jennifer: are you guys getting tired of seeing these candidates there every single day, several times a day? >> they're everywhere. as you mentioned
